Book Description Goss (privately printed Santa Barbara, California), 1969. Hardcover / Hardback. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. First edition. Hardback. About the year 1880, groups of lawless bands which had as their purpose the regulation of the manners and morals of the residents of the area, sprang up in the southern part of the State of Indiana. During the next 10 or 15 years these White Cap bands, as they were called, spread not only throughout the rest of Indiana but to neighbouring states as well - especially to Ohio, Illinois, and Iowa. Eventually the movement appeared even farther west, and in the early 1890's there were serious white Cap disturbances in the Territory of New Mexico and California. The Lake County White Cap episode is an important event in California history. The raid itself is an example of latter-day vigilantism, but there are other aspects of the incident which make it important historically. With Notes + Index. 132pp. 4to h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Uncut edges o/w F. Bookseller Inventory # 15784

Book Description by the author, Santa Barbara, 1969. First edition. Small quarto. Designed and printed by Lawton & Alfred Kennedy. Illustrated. Red cloth, lettered in gilt. A fine copy. Details the Lake County incident during the late 19th century involving the KIan-like vigilante White Cap movement. Whitecapping is a phenomenon that occurred specifically in America during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was originally a ritualized form of enforcing community standards, appropriate behavior and traditional rights. However, as it spread throughout North America it took on a distinct racial characteristic. It started in Indiana around 1873, as white males began forming secret societies in order to attempt to deliver justice. These groups were known as the "White Caps". The first White Cap encounters were generally aimed at those who went against a community's values such as abusive family men, women giving birth out of wedlock, et al. This important work details the Lake County incident, the only episode in California which was related to the White Cap movement. Bookseller Inventory # 2816
